Project Description

Live Oak Communications

Live Oak Communications is a student-run, faculty-led strategic communications agency in the School of Communication at Elon University. Students partner with business, nonprofit companies, and campus organizations to assist with public relations, advertising, social media strategies, graphic design, corporate identity, account planning, and research strategies. 

Some of my duties include weekly meetings with the leadership team, mentoring and working closely with the student Creative Director and creative team, evaluating and critiquing student work, managing the hiring process for the creative team, preparing competition entries, and helping prepare files to go to press, various social media platforms, or on a website. Live Oak offers students a way to gain first-hand experience and insights about what it’s like to be an account manager, creative content producer, or to hold a leadership position. Hal Vincent is the Director of Live Oak and we work together closely to help make Live Oak Communication a very representative experience for students.
